TSNN Webinar: Sustainable Trade Shows - Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good

August 18, 2014

Trade Show News Network will be offering another complimentary webinar in its well-regarded series – “Sustainable Trade Shows: Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good”.

The webinar will be held Aug. 21 at 1 p.m. EST and you can register HERE.

Trade shows are often seen as one of the highest producers of waste and carbon in the event world. They are also known for heavy energy consumption of electricity, water and fuel for transportation.

Today, trade show organizers and exhibitors can risk their corporate image if their audience perceives them as not being good stewards of the planet.

Trade shows are valuable and corporate social responsibility is an additional opportunity for both organizers and exhibitors alike to shine in their public’s eye (while still experiencing profitability.)
